Choco Nano Bread Recipe

Chef Choco does it again with a tasty and wholesome bread.  Next time he plans to go heavier on the tasty and lighter on the wholesome.

Choco Nano Bread Recipe

You'll need:

2 cups Bran Flakes or raison Bran Flakes
1 cup milk
2 cups Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar...Choco plans to put 1 cup sugar next time...more tasty, less wholesome
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 ripe bananas....all mashed up
1 loaf pan

Put the Bran Flakes in a bowl with the milk.  Let it sit for about 10 minutes to soften up.
Preheat the oven to 350
Mash up the three bananas with a fork until they are smooth and gooey.
Then mix in the eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, walnuts, and bananas into the bran flakes.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix thoroughly.
Now add that flour mixture to the bran flakes mix. In other words, mix it ALL together!

Pour this Nano batter into a loaf pan.  If your pan is non-stick just pour right in.  If your pan is NOT non-stick (that would be non non- stick) then grease it first.

Bake at 350 for 54.5  to 60 minutes.  Check at 54.5 minutes to make sure it's not getting too brown. If it is...take it out.

Wait a couple of minutes then gently flip the loaf pan over while holding the top of the puffy bread with a cloth towel to keep it from breaking in half.  Then put the bread on a cookie rack to cool.  If you are not the proud owner of a cookie rack, put it on a towel to cool.  The bread will get too moist on the bottom if you cool it on a plate.  Go ahead and have a nice, hot piece with butter.

Minty Bee says to mix that butter in some honey and spread it on the bread.
